Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has presented 15 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado VX and TXL to lawmakers representing the state at the National Assembly and urged them to defend the interest of the state in the discharge of their duties.
This is coming few weeks after Governor Wike distributed 41 new latest model of the Range Rover Discovery Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) to judges of the state High Court to boost justice delivery.
The governor, through Amb Desmond Akawor, Rivers Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presented 15 Land Cruiser Prado jeeps to the Rivers NASS members at Government House, Port Harcourt on Tuesday, August 25, 2020.
Wike in a statement released on the event by the Commissioner for Information and Communication, Paulinus Nsirim, said: “the gesture would ease their movement and enable them to discharge their legislative duties effectively.”
He urged the all PDP recipients to keep faith with the Party so they can collectively recover what was lost at the national during the forthcoming 2023 general election.
Senator representing Rivers East Senatorial District, George Thompson Sekibo noted on behalf of his colleagues that despite challenges posed by COVID-19 on the state finances, Wike still saved funds to provide them vehicles.
A member representing Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency, Dumnamene Deekor said the governor has been consistent in encouraging the federal legislators to protect the interest of Rivers people.
Also speaking, the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo said there is healthy synergy between the national lawmakers and the state government.
Danagogo said the synergy is made possible because Governor Wike has remained a leader who unifies all segments of leaders.
KanyiDaily recalls that Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma had also purchased 20 brand new Sports Utility Vehicles for the use of judges in the state.
